A corner site and transitory location between the vitality of upper Cuba Street and its surrounding residential context, the 9 storey Torrens Terrace apartment building provides a hierarchy of facades as articulation and emphasis of the vertical and horizontal planes. Floor levels are clearly defined and each floor is further segmented by the rhythm of the balconies, windows and structure. The concrete shear wall and structure are expressed creating solidity and contrasting with colourful lightweight panels and transparent glazing. There are 16 quality four bedroom apartments catering to students and young professionals, and a ground floor retail space. Layout of the apartments orientate to maximise the sun and distant views. Balconies and generous glazing allow for a direct connection between the interior and exterior environment. Internal finishes include a neutral background, clear finished raw concrete, steel mesh screens, timber laminate flooring and vibrant splashes of colour within the apartments.
